Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups Whole Raw Almonds
  • 2 tbsp, Salted Butter
  • 2 tsp. Chili Powder
  • ½ tsp. Cumin
  • ½ tsp. Garlic Powder
  • ½ tsp. Ground Cayenne Pepper
  • ½ tsp. Smoked Paprika
  • 2 tsp. Mineral Salt divided
  • 1 tsp. Liquid Smoke

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 450F and line a half size baking sheet with parchment, or a silicone baking mat.
  • Combine the chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, ground cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, and 1 tsp. of the mineral salt in a small bowl. Mix well.
  • Heat a medium skillet over medium heat and add the almonds, tossing them often to toast gently. After 2-3 minutes of toasting, remove the almonds from the skillet and set aside.
  • Add the butter to the skillet, whisking until melted.
  • Add the combined seasoning, whisking to combine the seasonings and butter. Add in the liquid smoke, and stir well. Keep your face away from the steam, because the cayenne will burn your eyes!
  • Add the almonds into the skillet, and toss well with the butter and seasoning mixture.
  • Toast the almonds with the butter and seasonings for another 1-2 minutes, tossing frequently to prevent burning.
  • Add the almonds to the prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Sprinkle the remaining 1 tsp. of mineral salt over the surface of the almonds. Shake them well to coat them evenly in mineral salt.
  • Roast in the oven for 12-15 minutes, shaking the baking sheet half way through the roasting time.
  • Remove the almonds from the oven and allow them to cool completely before moving them to a sealed container.

Notes

Note: You can store this at room temperature for up to one month, but they may get a little bit on the stale side and lose their crispness! These are so tasty, chances are they won't last long! My husband loves to take some of these to work for snacking, and it's a nice treat when you want something crunchy and salty. 
You can make these less spicy by omitting the ground cayenne pepper if desired!
